The Story of NitiJuly 22, 2013
This will be quite a stretch, and I hope you don't judge me for this, because this is a story that holds much sadness and subsequent hope in my heart. I copied it from a Skype chat when I was asking someone for advice.
Niti is part reality, and part imaginary. There is actually a girl named Niti out there. I suppose she's a woman now, she turned 18 last month. We created our avatars, Matt and Niti, to be ideal in traits to suit both of us. It was love, I suppose. But then I haven't heard from her for the longest time. I've given up on finding her.
We knew each other briefly in elementary school. Somehow, there was an English girl in my 5th grade class who had a thing for me and I was so wrapped up chasing some other girl I didn't notice her! (Said other girl ended up turning into a whore and getting knocked up in 8th grade by an undetermined 10th grader.) Niti found me on facebook in I wanna say 2010, saying that she had wanted to talk to me for forever. She told me about
The Meaning of FaithThis essay was written for my college English Composition class, but I wanted to publish it on DeviantART. I like what I said and wanted to share it with others.
Faith is an extremely abstract term, with as many definitions as there are people on this earth. But there isn't a real definition that everyone can agree on. I can tell you what I think it isn't, but that doesn't mean that it isn't that. According to Urban Dictionary, faith is “insubstantial, irrational belief.” “Glorified ignorance.” It is “belief in something despite all evidence to the contrary.” But that is not what I think it is. Faith is at its core an absolute confidence or trust in the path that you believe in. It also has many fundamental levels revolving around the core of it that are just as important as the faith itself. The layers are essential to define as they are what differentiate true faith from “glorified ignorance.” These layers involve how it works around ot

Character Profile - Vivienne WindhamCharacter Profile:
Name: Vivienne Windham
Nicknames: Vivi, Vi
Species: Timber Wolf
Ummm... Hi, I'm Vivienne... I like nature and cooking... I really enjoy fishing, my dad taught me how to... Um... well, I have a boyfriend. He's kind of a strange guy. Most people laugh at me and say that I'm insane, or even call me a slut for being with him. But... He isn't as horrible as people say he is! Just because he's the kind of creature he is, people automatically think that he's a horrible person... Wh-what kind of creature? Um... well... he's a... a tentacle monster... H-hey, wait! Don't run away, come back! D8
Vivienne is a shy, nerdy wolf. She is introverted to a point where she has trouble making conversation. Because of this, she never made very many friends growing up. She has trouble opening up to people, but when she does, it's worth it. She's kind, trustworthy, generous, and loves to help those she cares about.
What's a guy to do?What's a guy to do
When he fights with his friend
And the end looks bleak for them?
What's a guy to do
When he cannot amend
The troubles and sorrows from him?
What's a guy to do
When he betrays his closest confidant
So close that they were like brothers?
What's a guy to do
When a disaster he didn't want
Strains the brotherhood of love for another...?
Objective Proof of GodIf I tossed a coin 2000 times and called it right every single time, what would you think?
I can only imagine some of the things you would be thinking, but they would all stem from one rationalization: that what was happening defied logic.
To make sure we are on the same page, let me give you some quick facts about the Bible: The Bible was written over a span of about 1500 years (from 1445 BC to 95 AD) in 3 continents, in 3 languages, by 40 authors, and has 66 books. It's mostly a collection of letters written to churches. We can verify the dates of the books of the Bible through the efforts of historians, linguists, and archeologists.

What event is this verse referring to? If you have a basic knowledge of Christianity, then you know this is talking about Jesus' crucifixion. If you

The Father Who Gives You Strength
This excerpt is taken from "The Father Who Gives You Strength" by Max Lucado
It all happened in one day. One day he could choose his tee time at the nicest golf course in the country; the next he couldn’t even be the caddie. One day he could Lear jet across the country to see the heavyweight bout at the Las Vegas Mirage. The next he couldn’t afford a city bus across town.
Talk about calm becoming chaos. . .
The first thing to go is his empire.
The TruthThere's so much more
Behind the words I say
There's Black and White
Yet I speak in Gray

Dead Man's SwitchIn control, then not -
Sudden loss of grip.
Headlong to where?
Details lost, smudged, streaked.
Careening; no system of
No dead man's switch,
On a fast track -
With or without a god?
